    Open VM Tools for unRAID 6

    Give this plugin a try. It still needs some additional error/version checking, but it definitely works on 6.6.6 and 6.6.7, and its much more simple than the "auto" plugin that we all have been using for a while. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/StevenDTX/unRAID-open-vm-tools/master/openVMTools_compiled.plg

    I have an updated, much simpler, VMWare tools. I will try to post it tomorrow.

    If you just want a single proc board, it’s hard to beat the X9SRL-F. Ram for it is cheap, and you can always throw in a v2 processor. https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C600/X9SRL-F.cfm

    HGST Drives, what happened to them

    https://www.storagereview.com/western_digital_sells_hard_drive_assets_to_toshiba The X300 drive specs are very similar to the now defunct HGST NAS line. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16822149698

    HGST Drives, what happened to them

    WD discontinued the name around August of last year. Anything out there is old stock. I would love to find a chart that shows the equivalent HGST ---> WD drive. However, I also read that Toshiba now owns the HGST 3.5" technology.

    It looks like you already had it installed. The only thing I can recommend if rename your existing packages directory, extract everything off the zip to a new packages directory. Delete the existing plugin, reboot, then install the updated plugin.

    Well, v6.6.6 is sticking around longer than I thought it would. I updated the plugin to use VMWare Tools 10.3.5. https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/1pyHgCjGdPzLZ2YUn3ktUfewnft3Gped6
  13. But, now it is somewhat broken. You really should be able to boot barenetal unraid, without ESXi, just in case you run into real issues and nobody will help you because you are virtualized. Controllers are dirt cheap.
  14. RDMs are a bad idea. Why don’t you pass through the entire controller?
